Awesome! *wipes drool from chin*
I know its been discussed deep in the archives before but what colour are the stripes meant to be on these? I've seen them with both black and white?

Hi Martymexico,
Ford Australia calls it 'Midnight' Group C 1979/1980. No reference to blue.
 
I put the bodyshell out in strong sunlight yesterday for the first time for a few minutes. On the sunlight side appears a very deep tone of purple and magenta. On the shadow side when casually looked at first appears black but then looked closer realised it's definitely not black. Tended to play with my head because the colour, hue and tone constantly changes depending on angle of incidence it's looked at relative to the sun even though it is a solid (not metallic) paint. I started tripping out a bit so put the shell back inside and went and did something else. The car was painted 14 days ago so I expect the hue and tone will darken over the next month or so as the paint cures. The paint is being air dried at lowest possible temperatures, not baked.
 
Hi Drewdog,
When the cars were new I recall the stripes and logo could be black or silver or white.

Hi Peter
That's interesting , I used to own one in that dark purple blue nearly black, never bothered to check it's real code. Mine was just an in-between daily for a few months while I rebuilt my mk2 coup, sold the RS on when mine was built . Sometimes the colour looks best during it's curing time, my yellow van was a light shade of green for a month till it settled down !
